Violent crime has been rising sharply in many American cities after two decades of decline. Heather Mac Donald joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss the war on police in America, the Ferguson effect, why officers have been backing off from proactive policing, and how criminals are becoming emboldened. Heather Mac Donald is the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and the author of “The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe.” For more from Heather Mac Donald please go to: Buy The War on Cops: Freedomain Radio is 100% funded by viewers like you.
